Nothing is Impossible for Trumpet Trio
by Eddie Lewis
Nothing is Impossible. This is a trumpet trio composition that I wrote to be included in my First Trumpet Fruits album. First Trumpet Fruits is an album comprised mostly of compositions I wrote in the space of a year. These were compositions that I wrote as part of my “ministry”. That’s why most of these compositions had either Christian or uplifting titles.
Structure wise, Nothing is Impossible is quite different from a lot of my other works. The piece begins with a simple call and response. By the twentieth measure the piece modulates to a second theme, which also quickly becomes a development of sorts that leads us to a third theme. At letter E the theme, a march, repeats before all the themes blend at the end. The piece ends with yet another theme, with alternating three-four and five-eight measures.
Nothing is Impossible for Trumpet Trio is a composition for advanced trumpet players. In our skill level system, it falls in the Trumpet Pro skill level. The piece is not high. The highest note in the first trumpet part is A above the staff. However, the piece is long and requires a bit of endurance and maturity to play correctly.
